Prerequisites

Introductory courses on numerical analysis and differential equations. Experience with the package Matlab: this will be used for the two computer exercises.

Aim of the course

To provide theoretical insight in, and to develop some practical skills for, numerical solution methods for evolutionary (time-dependent) partial differential equations (PDEs). Particular emphasis lies on finite difference and finite volume methods for parabolic and hyperbolic PDEs.

Lecturers

P.A. Zegeling (and guest lecturers)
